Fashion is a woman’s game—or is it? All over town, menswear shops and bespoke studios are opening, flourishing, and proving that style isn’t just for the girls. From the rugged leanings of Fabric Row’s Armour to the handcrafted gems by Rittenhouse’s Commonwealth Proper, it’s never been easier—or more fun—for guys to stretch their sartorial wings. Here, what the well-dressed Philadelphia man will be wearing this spring.

The Men’s Guide to Shopping in Philly

Armour: For casual, well-priced apparel and accessories with a rugged, cool feel.

Boyds: For high-end pieces (and the highest-end suiting) by big name brands.

Commonwealth Proper: For bespoke pieces and natty extras like ties and pocket squares.

Govberg Jewelers: For the best selection of watches around.
